Quality materials, hand craftsmanship, couture styling and affordablity are hallmarks of Callanan Legacy.
Legacy; gift, bequest by will; special keepsakes handed down from generation to generation;luxury items that we never truly own but are caretakers of for the next generation.
Callanan hat making has a very long lineage; even the family coat of arms features a helmet festooned with plumes. The first John Callanan hat manufacturer on record is found in Holden's Triennial Directory of Cork City, Ireland in 1809. He had an establishment on the North Main Street. The current John Callanan was born in Cork City and currently resides in New York City.
